Subluxation, Stress, & Chronic Illness in Children: What Parents Should Know

Have you ever wondered why so many children today seem to be facing chronic illnesses and struggling with their health? And why are so many parents grappling with stress and exhaustion themselves? What if we told you that a single, straightforward concept could be closely linked to almost every health challenge that families are confronting in today’s fast-paced world?

In this blog, we will dive into the incredible power of addressing subluxation and stress on the nervous system, offering a game-changing health solution for you and your children. If you’ve tried everything it seems to get your family healthy, and it hasn’t clicked just yet, this is for you!


The Rising Tide of Chronic Conditions in Children

One troubling trend in our current world is the surge in chronic health conditions among children. From allergies and asthma to autism, anxiety, and ADHD, these conditions are on the rise, largely due to the stressful and toxic environment in which we live. While modern medicine often attributes these issues to genetics and bad luck, research points to a “Perfect Storm” of factors and stressors affecting our children’s health from as early as pregnancy and early childhood. 

The culmination of these factors results in an overburdened and unbalanced nervous system, triggering an overactive sympathetic fight or flight response. This state is known as subluxation, and it’s pivotal to comprehend how our children’s health can be negatively impacted.

Subluxation doesn’t confine its impact to a single facet of health. It permeates the core elements of well-being, affecting sleep, gut health, immune function, and motor development. As the condition progresses, it sets deeper into the brain and nervous system, influencing cognitive and emotional health, behavior, focus, concentration, speech, and more. 


Identifying Subluxation in Kids and Families

Subluxation can manifest differently in children of various age groups: 

  • Infants: struggles with latching, sleeping, soothing, eating and digestion.
  • Toddlers: chronic ear infections, respiratory challenges, constipation, gross motor delays, sensory issues, meltdowns, tantrums, speech delays, and more.
  • Grade School: challenges with focus, concentration, behavior, emotional regulation, anxiety, chronic gut issues, and more. 
  • Teens and Adults: chronic fatigue, anxiety, brain fog, exhaustion, and depression. 


At Whole Family Chiropractic, we leverage an extraordinary piece of technology called INSiGHT Scans that’s transforming healthcare. This groundbreaking technology empowers us to detect and measure subluxation, sympathetic dominance, and neurological imbalances throughout your entire family.  Our scans are safe for infants as young as a few days old, and within minutes, you can finally uncover the true root cause of your family’s health challenges. Take that vital first step towards a healthier, happier family by addressing subluxation. 

If you are ready to schedule a consultation at Whole Family Chiropractic, please give us a call or send us a direct message today! If you are not local to us in St. Paul, Minneapolis or the Twin Cities, check out the PX Docs directory to find an office local to you.
